Cary dad charged with raping son's ex-girlfriend

— A Cary father and Fort Bragg soldier who authorities say tried to disprove accusations that his son raped his ex-girlfriend, faces more charges himself in connection with the alleged assault.

Dwayne Frazier, 42, of 522 Siltstone Place, was charged Tuesday with second-degree rape and first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

After searching Frazier's home, investigators found a video that showed Frazier, as well as his son, on camera committing sexual acts with the girl, Cary police Capt. Mike Williams said. Frazier, he said, was committing the acts against the girl's will, he added.

The exploitation charge against Frazier is for making the video, Williams said.

Frazier's attorney, Patrick Roberts, said his client denies the allegations.

Investigators are still looking into Frazier's son's involvement to determine whether he will be charged.

Cary police began investigating Frazier when they learned a man was showing portions of the video to people in the community, including officials at his son's former high school.

"It appears that he took the videotape to the high school to defend his son's honor, saying the son was not a participant in a rape," Williams said.

According to the warrant, Frazier used the video clips in an effort to clear his son of the accusations and to prove the sex was consensual.

The 17-year-old victim's mother reported to police on Nov. 6 that her daughter had been videotaped having sex with Frazier's 16-year-old son and that she was raped.

Last week, police charged Frazier with second-degree exploitation of a minor for allegedly copying the video and third-degree exploitation of a minor for showing the video to others.

Frazier, who was in the Wake County Jail Tuesday afternoon under a $400,000 bond, is a sergeant first-class with the Army's 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment, part of the 82nd Airborne Division's 4th Brigade Combat Team.

An 82nd Airborne spokesman said the Army is aware of the charges, but has made no determination about his status as a soldier.

Cary police will take the lead on the case, he said, and the Army decides on a case-by-case basis what internal investigation or discipline will take place.

    "And on a side note....THe age of consent in North Carolina is 16. So a 16 year old can consent to have sex with whomever she wants (not that I am AT ALL saying there was consent in this particular case)- It is however, illegal to video or photograph in sexual acts involving a minor under 18 years old-"

    Why is it just a "she"?

    I wnt back and reread this story. The video shows the father with the girl as well. Was she drugged?

    This is a mess. The only way anyone will know what happened is to watch the video. I wonder if she knew she was being taped. I hope this is simply a case of something being blown out of proportion.

    "Frazier's attorney, Patrick Roberts, said his client denies the allegations." I bet he does....wonder if that will change after they show that video to a jury?? Rule one for criminals- DON'T VIDEO TAPE YOURSELF COMMITTING A CRIME!! You would think they'ld learn, but criminals are stupid, that's why they are criminals to begin with.

    I work for a living...I hope that you never have had to experience RAPE cause 17 or 70 it is still RAPE. Even if a person changes their mind, remember Mike Tyson, he went to jail for RAPE. At any time NO-IS-NO. Beaker...thank you for the explanation about 1st & 2nd degree......I do not agree on the reason, the violent act of RAPE should be enough for only one level of DEGREE. Happy Thanksgiving

    Sounds to me more like the Girl was very drunk or drugged and therefore unable to consent, therefore Rape.
    Father is monumentally stupid for having done it and doubly so for showing the Principal the video!

    17 isn't exactly a baby and ever consider she changed her mind once caught by mommy?
